Duluth Minnesota - Things to Do and See


In our travels around Lake Superior, Duluth has become our favorite Lake Superior "Big Town."

Few travelers to Duluth Superior Twin Ports can miss the Aerial Lift bridge (pictured above - center). This Duluth landmark separates Canal Park from Minnesota Point - the spit of land (actually an island) that runs east of the bridge. This picture was taken from Enger Tower rising from the top of the 600 ft high bluff that runs for several miles along this edge of Lake Superior. In addition to scenic vistas, a beautiful lakefront, neat restaurants and shopping, Duluth parks offers some great outdoor recreation.

The most popular Holiday attraction in Duluth is the Bentleyville Tour of Lights Christmas Village which opens November 22nd and runs through December 27th.

Duluth's Frozen Harbor
One benefit of a colder winter is Lake Superior freezes over in Duluth's outer harbor giving Hockey players and skaters some smooth, clear ice to play on.
